Sometimes, the BIOS runs really slow on my Dell Vostro 1550 computer (10 seconds). When I go to the BIOS setup and switch to a different tab, the new tab shows up slowly. My OS (Kubuntu) runs normally (only the BIOS runs really slow).
The Dell technician says to upgrade the BIOS. I don't think it will fix the problem.
I have been playing games, and the temperature is 80-84 ℃ when the games is running. After about an hour of gaming, Linux automatically shutdown due to too high temperature I think.
- Is that temperature too high? I Googled it and I found this. Is it correct?
- Do you think the problem could be because of the CD drive, peripheral devices, etc.?
- Any ideas why it could be happening and how to fix it?
EDIT: problem solved now, technician replaced the fan, mobo and thermal paste. Thanks for your time.
